On December 13, 2016 the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador passed legislation in the House of Assembly require an annual listing of all employees in departments and a number of agencies, boards, commissions, health care bodies, educational bodies and Crown corporations who receive total compensation of more than $100,000 in a year.
The list will report on calendar-year earnings and will be published annually by June 30 on the Human Resource Secretariat webpage.
An individual employee, or category of employee, may be exempted from disclosure if it could unduly threaten the safety, or mental or physical health of that employee. There are no other grounds for granting exemptions to disclosure. To learn more about the exemption process see the Guideline document below. To apply for an exemption, fill out the Exemption Application Form and submit to the applicable Deputy Minister or Head of the Agency, Board or Commission.
